4 cups leftover mashed potatoes (cold)
4 strips bacon, cooked and finely chopped
¼ cup chipotle in adobo, pureed
3 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup bread crumbs
hot oil for frying

Take leftover mashed potatoes and add, mixing well, the bacon, chipotle in adobo puree, and 1 egg. Once everything is well combined, start shaping the potato mixture by taking about a golf ball sized amount into your hands and forming oblong shapes that are about ¼ inch thick. Place the remaining eggs (whisked), flour, and bread crumbs into individual shallow bowls. Dredge your croquettes into the flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs and set them aside. Continue dredging the croquetas until all the mixture is gone. Cook the croquettes in batches until they are golden brown. After fried, drain them on a paper towel lined plate before serving.
